House & Home (128)
Grow food in your fridge
Herbs and vegetables taste better when they are fresh. Hanna Sandstrom created a new refrigerator which provides additional space where herbs and plants can be planted and grown. Integrated light, temperature and moisture control, nutrition and water provide for growth and progress. With this refrigerator everyone can cultivate their own healthy food at home.
Why it matters
Does the convenience of being able to grow food inside your home make it more accessible to everyone? With outdoor space becoming scarce is this a real alternative to the garden allotment?
Imagine if one person who retires could buy a house on the beach or in the mountains with their savings. What could 10 people buy if they put their money together? A whole village!
This was the idea of a group of Spanish friends who decided to buy a village on the mountain to retire and relax together. They renovated the village to build their dream, group living experience, a “business class commune”.
They are building common places to share activities such as a big kitchen and a swimming pool. But everybody is going to have their own private home.
Panasonic launched its latest solar-powered LED balls at the Tokyo Hotaru Festival. The EVERLED light bulbs were meant to represent fireflies as well as pay homage to the Japanese tradition of floating candles on the water.
The spectacular event lit up the waterway with a sparkling radiance while promoting the brand’s ecofriendly product.
